Dakota Fanning has signed on to co-star as the female lead alongside Daniel Bruhl and Luke Evans in TNT’s highly anticipated adaptation of Caleb Carr’s best-selling novel “The Alienist”.
Paramount TV and Turner’s Studio T will produce the series which revolves around the search for a serial killer in turn of the century New York City.
Fanning plays Sara Howard, a secretary for police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt who is determined to become the city’s first female police detective.
Production is slated to begin soon in Budapest ahead of a late 2017 premiere. TNT has also renewed its Michelle Dockery drama “Good Behavior” for a second season.
